Maryna! Don't look!

because I want you to be all surprised when you open the package. YET, it's so exciting that I can't help but show them here! I felt like a kid again when I made these today. I call them coffee bells because they are the jingle of Christmas. Half of them have little bells on them. They look like candy! So, Ryna, when you open the little box, please scream and shout like you usually do and pretend it's a NEW surprise.

I love them so (THANKS Sarah!!!!) that I am giving away a KIT to make your own. Because, let's face it, the biggest fun is in the making after all. So I will include everything you need to make these coffee bells. Everything. Even the Starbucks cup. If you want to play, leave me a comment. Just chat to me and you can be in line to win the kit. I promise you, you will smile when you do this! You can see the digital page I did of the project for my Christmas album here.

I did them in odd little times I had between driving the girls to Ballet and their exams today. I made about eleven trips (!!!!)


A thought for you :Phil 4: 1 My dear, dear friends! I love you so much. I do want the very best for you. You make me feel such joy, fill me with such pride. Don't waver. Stay on track, steady in God.

Love that Word.
Blessings
Wilna

ETA: Melissa did a lift of my coffee cards. Go and have a look!

Wou nog altyd eerste wees om vir jou kommentaar te los op jou blog, so vandag is my kans. As ek belowe om ook te skree en dans, sal jy dit vir my stuur???
Jou dae klink soos myne was toe my 4 kinders 13 verskillende buitemuurse aktiwiteite gehad het - net 'n waarskuwing, probeer om dit te geniet, want dit hou nie lank nie, my jongste het twee jaar gelede haar lisensie gekry en ek het gedink dit gaan voel of ek vlerke gekry het - tot my verbasing voel dit of iemand my vlerke geknip het. Kannie vir jou sĂȘ hoe mis ek die rugby, ballet, gimnastiek, voortrekkers, netbal, waterpolo, drama, en, en,... nie.

You inspire me! Here I am looking for a block of time to do stuff.Gifties, scrapbooking, cards, etc. And you simply take advantage of what you have been given. Way to go, girl!!!!

Melissa said...

Wilna, I made one inspired by your example for my son's 20th birthday this week. You can go to my blog to see the finished product. I was blown away when I saw yours.....I thought, "How does she "see" these things? That is creative genius!"

Where in the world do you get all your creative ideas. You inspire us all. Great project. Thanks, Cherri

What an idea!! How do these ideas come into your brain-- or should I say your heart. Coz something this beautiful has to be felt before it can be made. The heart sees and the brain follows. Is that how you do it? Would love to receive a kit from you. Priya

Kindest regards

I love these! You are such an inspiration!

Sharon said...

So cool, Wilna! Love how you're getting all Sarah's projects done! Know someone that these "coffee bells" would be perfect for so just might have to make my own for them.

CC said...

Very cute project. Looks like I have things here that I can use to make a few for a couple friends. Thanks for the inspiration.

I found you blog surfing a little while back and I love your art. I would love to win the kit and make some of these for my loved ones. I am so thrilled in finding this world filled with creative, talented, awesome people who support and encourage each other. I live far from my friends and family in a really small town and this blog world filled with talented artists like you has "saved" me. Thanks for sharing your beautiful and inspirational projects.

Juel said...

Oh Wilna, this is such a wonderful idea!! I would LOVE to win a kit.
If I'm not chosen:
Would you be willing to share what scriptures you used for each day?

I have a friend that would just LOVE this!!!
